    Just compartmentalize in multiple VMs, each connecting via distinct VPN chain and/or Tor. Make sure that anything that can be linked is OK to be linked. Then tracking doesn't matter.

    My browser started to use 100% of the CPU, so apparently it's not easy to track people in a smooth way, with this method.
